Call For Papers

The 5th Conference on Human Development in Asia is a small, two-day, peer-reviewed international conference held from December 20-21, 2017 alongside the 5th Asian Symposium on Healthcare Without Borders and the 4th International Conference on Advancing the Life Sciences and Public Health Awareness.

COHDA was also held this past spring in Hiroshima and preceded the Golden Week period. Due to the inability of many participants to attend last April due to the peak season travel, we are holding COHDA this December again in Hiroshima.

In addition to the symposium, participants will have an opportunity to enjoy a free, guided tour in English of Hiroshima Peace Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The theme of COHDA 2017 is Challenges and Opportunities for Asia, which focuses on the issues of an increasingly globalized Asia that have resulted over the course of the past century. Asia has been a major site of colonialism and decolonization; global warfare; political upheaval and regime change; the rise of new nations; ongoing ethnic and religious conflict; economic boom and recession; population explosion; cultural diasporas; viral epidemics; technological advancement; and severe environmental pollution and disasters.

While commentators and analysts have rightly recognized the vast changes that have shaped the Asian continent, it is also crucial to understand the continuities that are maintained even in the face of such impetus for change. Apart from change, what are the constants that are still resistant to change? In addition, what are the factors that have contributed to such ongoing resilience? Although it may be argued that the forces of globalization and development have set in motion a number of positive changes in the ways we live our lives, this has also been counterbalanced by the continuities of inequality and suffering for many others. More than often, the tide of change exists in a state of tension with the forces of continuity. Hence, in order for us to comprehend the forces of change, we must also engage the other forces that hold it back.

We are offering a special early registration rate of only 23,500 JPY. We welcome submissions of 250 words in English by Friday, November 17, 2017.
